    Well, I've been lurking around for a while and made a few posts here and there. Joined VMP in September and digging it so far. Started collecting in the late 90s when you could dig through a thrift store and find GOLD. Father of 1 from Memphis but living in Knoxville now. Glad to be a part of this madness!

    Just signed up for the VMP classics track today! Blossom dearie sold it for me, long time lurker but looking to be a part of the community. I’m a jazz head, a huge blue note fan, hailing from the Chicagoland suburbs;)

    Hey, I lived in Alemeda for a while as a kid. My dad was stationed there after we came back from Japan. I went to Kindergarten at Woodstock Elementary and my brother was born at Oakland Army Hospital.

    Welcome. You can still strike gold in a thrift store it just isn’t as often.

    I don't think Woodstock still exists. I wonder where it was?

    Do you remember much about your time in Japan?

    Not really. Some vague early memories that aren’t tied to pictures or stories my parents told. Mostly the layout of the house, remembering my dad coming home on a bike, thinking it was a cool place. Cool looking tv that I had no idea what was going on in.

    Hmmm... okay I'll finally introduce myself. Hello VinylMePlease community my name is Tyler. I just moved out to California this past October after planning it for awhile. I'm originally from New Jersey/Philly and went to school at Temple University. I've known about this awesome vinyl club for a year now and finally pulled the trigger. I love discovering new music which has me really looking forward to getting lost in new ROTMs and exclusives.

    Hi All,

    My name is Steve, based in Portland but originally from Hawaii.

    I've been collecting vinyl here and there since high school, but only recently have I started actively building up my collection. Last few purchases include The Dreaming by Kate Bush, Blueberry Boat by Fiery Furnaces, Tadaima by Akiko Yano and Stankonia by Outkast. And, of course, some older VMP pickups as I just joined: MF Doom and Feist. Flying Lotus and the Guru Guru Brain pack are on their way!

    I've been on a big reggae (and its many forms) kick lately, so stuff like The Best Dub Album in the World... by The Scientist, Susan Cadogan's self-titled debut and Joe Gibbs and the Professionals Volume 2 have been getting a lot of spins.

    Really happy to join these forums as it seems like other vinyl forums tend to veer either to the too anal retentive or too casual.

    Hi everyone,

    I've been a VMP member for about a year and a half, but have finally joined the forum. I'm enjoying it so far!

    A big Hello and Happy New Year from Scotland.
    Just found this website thru Facebook so thought I'd have a look as music , and in particular vinyl , is a major part of my life , along with motorcycles.
    At the moment I have a collection of almost 3000 vinyl Lp's , 250 ep's 7" and 12" singles and around 2000 cd's , ranging from 70's punk , to 80's till now Indie , Dance , Trip Hop , Acid Jazz and a load of Downtempo Electronica with a smattering of Pink Floyd and Led Zep etc. I have been buying records since I was around 12 years old and still buy over 50 Lp's a year , even though I find new music is getting a bit stale.
    I also got swallowed up in the HiFi carry on for more years than I care to mention until I found out I had climbed the ladder as far as I could to the point it now costs a fortune to upgrade for only slight improvement in sound quality. I'd much rather spend my money on topping up my pension and buying records nowadays.

    Hi guys, been on this forum for awhile. Just didn’t take the time to introduce myself. I have always been a music lover. I mean I can’t go a day without my music. It’s gotten me through any situation I have faced in my life. I truly “feel” the music and lyrics. I received a turntable as a gift and off I went. It’s become an addiction now.
    Anyway, my name is Katie. I live in Omaha, Nebraska and have two toddlers that are a handful! Music is my sanity and escape. Just wanted to say I am so glad I found this forum, you all have introduced my to some mind blowing music. I have truly found my people. Thank you!

    Good afternoon,

    Been a VMP member for not too long, but decided to join the forum to help with my endless pursuit of Young Thug - Jeffery

    If anyone can assist with selling theirs or wants to trade let me know. I have a nice collection.

    I have succeeded in my quest, but will continue to hangout cuz you all rock

    I'm originally from California and currently living in Ohio. I listen to everything from country to death metal. If it's good I will listen to it no matter what genre. I'm always looking for recommendations to check out. As of late I have been listening to a lot of atmospheric black metal as well as folk and doom.
